Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship
The University of Utah is recruiting for a position in their two-year Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology (CCEP) fellowship beginning January 1, 2017. The program includes clinical rotations at the University of Utah and Salt Lake City VA Hospital, as well as didactic and research activities. Expertise will be gained in complex ablation, including involvement in a vibrant atrial fibrillation ablation program, lead extraction, cardiac resynchronization, and complex CRM device management. Completion of cardiovascular disease fellowship required.
The CCEP fellowship at the University of Utah is accredited by the ACGME and fellows completing the CCEP year are eligible to take the CCEP board examination administered by the ABIM. The ACGME stipulates that the CCEP year follow three years of general cardiology fellowship. However, additional clinical or research training can precede (or follow) the CCEP year.
For those entering from outside programs who have done or will do general cardiology training elsewhere, two years of training are recommended. The first year is a full twelve months of clinical training in cardiac electrophysiology. Trainees are involved in all aspects of arrhythmia care: daily rounds, outpatient clinics, electrophysiologic studies, ablations, pacemaker and ICD implantation and follow-up.
Trainees who will have completed a cardiovascular diseases fellowship may apply for specialized training in our Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Program, directed by Dr. Roger Freedman.
